From the growler, it pours a hazy light golden color with a small white head. Lacing. Pleasant scent of bread and light spice. The mouth gets a nice light flavor of bread and spice. Nice!

Pours a cloudy lemon yellow with almost no head. Smells a little sour and has a mild sour taste. Quite a bit of carbonation like a soda. Can barely taste any coriander. 23oz draft $9.50 @Legals Test Kitchen @ Boston Logan Airport Terminal A.

Serving Type: "Tall" Draught @ Olive Garden in South Portland, ME

L- Hazy pale yellow with a 1/2 finger white head. Good retention with light lacing.

S- Coriander, zesty orange, and a light wheat note combine for a beautiful aroma.

T- Very pleasant flavours of Wheat, coriander, and orange. Perfect amount of spice and orange. Finish is a nice dank hop flavour. Well balanced taste.

F- Medium body with moderate carbonation. Perfect for the style.

O- An American Witbier that can punch it's weight with the best of the best from Europe.

Enjoyed on a tap at the Green Growler in Croton-on-Hudson, New York.

Citric but dry, slight dank cannabis notes. Very pretty in the glass. Nice aroma. Medium mouthfeel.

This is the best witbier I've had in the US by far. It reminds me of the beers I've drunk in Europe, so Allagash did well in keeping with the Belgian style.

S: Light, pleasant aroma
T: Has just the right amount of spice & slightly fruity
F: Good body & very refreshing
